Re: “Last Night at Roy's

This is such a great story. I was born and raised in Eureka. I'm very familiar with old town. Growing up in the 70s and 80s, my family didn't visit 1st or 2nd st often. We did shop at Daly's on 5th street though. And woolsworths was fun. What about bonanza 88. The old Eureka Theatre was great. Loved the drive inn on 101 when opened. We had really great days in the past. I would love to have been raised during the happening times at Roys. I remember going to Roys in 1991 on a prom date. It was a place reserved for special occasions. Always great food. I appreciate the history shared here. The negative commenter above should remove his comment since not appropriate and out of line. In the future should you have an issue, please fill out a comment card and not blast it on the owner's farewell. Please go back to your rock and troll somewhere else. Best of wishes to the families!!!

Re: “Fair Fight

Yea most entities do not reveal there fleecing of tax dollars. They especially dont want to let the tax payers of this county knowing anything about accountability. It gets real interesting when you see a city or county cry that there is no funding for roads. the county owes millions on cal pers retirement system with making minimal payments each month. Anymore they would rather watch the road deteriorate until a good storm comes along and declare emergency funding disaster rather than maintain the roads.. When the whole chicken pen is full of foxes there is no honor among thieves. Government gets more expensive to run every year while getting better benefits and there output is less, like right down to cal trans level ( shovel in hand bs' n all day). Its easy for them to pencilwhip the financial reports to match what looks good to them. The auditing is just as bogus , and now with browns shred document law which his family has trademark patent rights in (just kidding) . Sometimes it's best not to know and or get involved and tell your elected leaders we demand accountability!

Re: “Last Night at Roy's

How dare you write such a disparaging review if a restaurant opened in 1919 by the Fanucchis, who have served up fine Italian cuisine since that time. Over 3 generations of my family have enjoyed dining at Roy's Club, and i remember how exciting it was when my Grandparents took us there the first time. Service was always wonderful, along with a number of excellent chefs manning the kitchen.

I don't know where you are from, but we were born and raised here in Eureka. We always enjoyed the different courses that arrived before dinner, and the entrees that followed, the great service and hospitality, the ambiance ... and left full, happy, looking forward to the next time we'd return

Hopefully Roy's Club will be designated as a Historical Landmark, maintained s such, and reopened soon.

So very sorry this restaurant is closing for now. Many thanks to Evo & Catherine for keeping it open for so long. Congratulations on a happy retirement !!!

Re: “Last Night at Roy's

How dare you insult a fine restaurant established in 1919 by the Fanucchis and where at least 3 generations of my family have enjoyed dining all our lives. My Grandparents took us there for special occasions and we always looked forward to the delicious food that arrived steaming hot from the kitchen, and where a number of fine chefs cooked an array of wonderful Italian dishes.

The restaurant itself should be designated as a historical building, kept up to that standard, and hopefully re-opened soon.

Perhaps you are not from this area; however, my family was born and raised here in Eureka. Every time we went to Roys was a special occasion! We left full, happy, and could hardly wait until the next time we'd return. So sorry Evo & Catherine, you're closing. Congratulations on a very happy retirement!!!

Re: “Last Night at Roy's

For as long as I've live in Humboldt County the food served at this establishment has been unrecognizable to an Italian palate. Poorly cooked seafood risotto covered in cheep domestic Parmesan cheese and over cooked pasta, my point to those journalists covering the local food scene it that they do an establishment no favors when they cover for mediocre food.

Re: “Passive Resistance

This is the first time I have ever seen anyone, let alone a public representative, call a Human Rights Resolution "negative and mean".

Shame on Brady, and the Mayor.
